Dead Rising 4 Review - IGN

IGN: The allure of the original Dead Rising’s goofy and gratuitous zombie slaughter was the reason I bought an Xbox 360 back in 2006. Dead Rising 4 ratchets that arcadey, hack-and-slash power fantasy and self-aware satire up to new heights. Even when technical issues rear their ugly heads, that feelgood loop of wading into the horde and coming out the other side has me feeling like a bonafide badass.

Love zombies games and the Dead Rising franchise. It's a automatic day one buy for me. Gonna take a break from Gears 4 multiplayer and enjoy this game.

I said it once and ill say it again:
The handful of Xbox exclusives have been total let downs this generation. Regardless of what review scores it got. Recore, Quantum break, (even) Gears of war and now this. With nintendo on the horizon, and Sony leading the battle. Microsoft needs to step up.


@mvgeneral...umm you are joining right? Do you even own an xb1?

Only 1 ms exclusive was a let down and that was quantum break.

Imo all the games that you mentioned are amazing fun games. The only Xbox exclusive that I didn't like was Recore. I still haven't finished it yet.

The reviews are pretty much what I expected for this game, average in the 70's, and that's what's happening. Still looks like a decent game.

Is scores is your thing, this game has it near to Dead Rising 3's average.
The reviews use the word "fun" everywhere. Must buy to me, no doubt.

In the end the only rating and opinion that truly matters is the one we give to it and not what these sites give it. Why cause you never know the types of games the reviewer is into. For all you know that person prefers sport titles over everything else. Me personally i cant wait to play DR4.

Damn.I know I'm getting this but my wallet is still recovering from the recent Xbox digital game sales.

Cant wait for this game.

Too many serious games these days.

Fun seems to have disapeared out the Window. Thank God this brings some fun back again.

Also balance... It is good to see a game that does not obsess over underpowering the player.

Christopher347d ago

100% agree. Gone are the days of Saints Row, Borderlands, Brutal Legend, Grim Fandango, Portal, King's Quest, every single LEGO game, Grand Theft Auto, Shadow Warrior 2...

Wait, nevermind, I don't agree.
